Fermilab Arts Series

Summer Season 2001

Max Morath--The Ragtime Man / Saturday, June 16 / $12 ($6 ages 18 and under)

Max Morath presents a musical glance at an earlier America, blending humor, satire, and song with plenty of rocking ragtime piano solos along the way. Morath takes his audiences to the infant years of the 20th Century, when ragtime, Americas first Pop Music, bewitched the kids and scandalized their parents. Touring America as "The Ragtime Man", Morathís repertory ranges from piano rags to show tunes, vaudeville novelties to the blues, giving new life to the words, music, and spirit of such musical immortals as Scott Joplin, Irving Berlin, May Irwin, George and Ira Gershwin, and Bert Williams.

All Fermilab Arts & Lecture Series events take place in Wilson Hallís Ramsey Auditorium. For tickets or further information, please call our box office at 630/840-ARTS weekdays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
